Man, I don’t know what I would do without my girls. They sure do exhaust me, and some days make me cry like a baby. But all their love, hugs, kisses, smiles, sweet notes, and how much they love me. I don’t know where I would be without them.
I bought this little dress when I struggled with infertility for a couple of years. It was so beautiful the day that Abby was old enough to wear it. Now my second baby girl fits in it! (actually this was a couple of months back)
Cameron is just so interesting. At times it is hilarious, at times it is borderline worrisome, at times it is just the coolest thing to watch. She checks out books from the library on palm reading and dream reading. She takes notes on what she learns in her big notebooks, then she practices. When we go back to the library, she finds another book on it to learn more. She asks us what our dreams were about in the morning and if it matches something she has learned, she tells us what it means. She was reading The Book of Mormon and found the part on Lehi’s dream. She brings it up all the time and wants to focus on small parts of it and talk all about what it could mean.
She also does not take crap from anymore but those closest to her. If a boy is bugging her she will grab their toy, take their scooter, tell them what she thinks, etc. But if someone in the family is nasty to her she gets so upset when they get in trouble.
Sweet Cameron spends most of her day writing in her notebooks. Poetry is something she loves. The other day she wrote this to Abby:
Love is like a bird flying by
and like a hug good bye
Wind blowing in your face
as you stand in place
When we go to the library she runs to the comic book section first. This feisty lady doesn’t let adults boss her around if she doesn’t agree. At school the teacher was asking her to read and she refused. She stubbornly told the teacher that the books were far too easy for her. They were, she is on a reading level N, and her other classmates are A/B. So, she opted for a frowny face in her behavior book instead of reading.
Her dad tells her everyday before school, “CAMERON! QUESTION AUTHORITY!” She is good at doing that. I just wish she expected those closet to her to treat her better.
This little girl is just INTERESTING. I mean that word in a good way, I wish my mind worked like hers. It would be the most adventurous day to live in that little mind of hers.
I think naming her after Anne, with an E, AnnE, was a perfect choice.
These are snapshots of one of her notebooks from about oh quite a few months back. But I had to post them before I lost them on my overloaded computer. The first one was all the lyrics to a Primary song she was learning. The second one is random lines. The third one is a list of all her best friends. And last was written right after her birthday about being 6!
